Two drug dealers who supplied heroin to the English pop star Boy George were each sentenced Friday to four years in jail. A London court found Steven Luben, 36, and Diane Feiner, 35, guilty of supplying Boy George, whose real name is George O'Dowd, with drugs between October 1985 and July 1986. The prosecutor said the 25-year-old singer had been only an occasional drug user until the couple made him a heroin addict. "They clung to him like leeches," he said. Boy George underwent treatment to end the addiction last summer and paid a fine in August for possessing drugs.
